Mark is a Partner in the Corporate team.

Experienced in all aspects of corporate transactions for vendors and purchasers, from due diligence and drafting heads of terms to structuring deals and indemnities that minimise risk or limit exposure to negotiating share purchase agreements.  His expertise covers corporate governance from start up to joint venture, but his focus is on healthcare, notably dental practice acquisition and disposal. Mark handles the whole practice purchase, advising clients on funding, application for registration with the Care Quality Commission, dental contracts with the NHS, practice asset or share transactions.

In addition, Mark advises individual dentists buying and selling practices as well as dental corporates acquiring practice portfolios, and he advises small companies across a range of sectors.

Recent examples of how Mark has supported clients include:

  • facilitating the purchase of a dentist's first practice advising on funding, due diligence, and assisting with the smooth transition of CQC registration and initial NHS contract;
  • enabling a corporate dental group to acquire multiple practices for a portfolio in different locations by undertaking due diligence for each practice to tight deadlines; and
  • ensuring a waste disposal business could sell property assets and raise working capital in a way that did not jeopardise its ability to continue trading.
